Electrify Armament is an Incantation in Elden Ring. Electrify Armament spell enchants weapon with lightning damage.

 

One of the incantations of the capital's ancient dragon cult.

Elden Ring Electrify Armament Guide

  • One of the Dragon Cult Incantations.
    • Howver, its damage is not boosted by Gravel Stone Seal.
      • Testing shows that using Electrify Armament with Gravel Stone Seal at 206 spellbuff and Finger Seal at 208 spellbuff (almost same spellbuff for both) deal almost the same exact damage on hit to the same enemy (2 damage difference, because of spellbuff).
        • The added Lightning damage to the weapon in the equipment screen also reflects the same output, having a 2 damage difference between both seals.
        • This means that if Gravel Stone Seal did boost Electrify Armament,  the buff would deal more damage than when casted with Finger Seal. But that is not the case.

  • Buffs weapon with Lightning attack power
  • Lightning: 0.75 * Incant Scaling (Faith portion)
  • Duration: 90 seconds
  • Stamina Cost: 10

Notes & Tips

  • Multi-scaling seals such as Clawmark Seal, Frenzied-Flame Seal, Dragon Communion Seal, and Golden Order Seal only scale weapon buffs with Faith,  making the Gravel Stone Seal the best choice to use with this Spell.

      Very handy for a knight build. As a vagabond you only need to put 1 point into faith and then have the Two Finger Heirloom to boost your faith from 10 to 15. On top of that you can get 17 faith by using the Haligtree Knight Helm which allows you to use Black Flame Blade. This is very good for very high health targets.

      Stay happy Tarnished!

        Is there a formula for calculating the elemental damage applied from enchant incantations that takes faith level and seal bonuses into account? For example, how would I calculate how much lightning damage would be applied by Electrify Armament with a specific faith level and the Gravel Stone Seal +10% to Dragon Cult incants?

          Assuming I'm using the Finger Seal, at which point does this incant overtake Lightning Grease in terms of potency?

          • Anonymous

            Since the lightning infusion via Ashes of War scales off DEX (I believe), do you get more damage out of this if your DEX is higher, or is it strictly based on faith/incant scaling?

              Old lord's talisman is worth it for this alone. The duration is ridiculous, you'll never have to worry about rebuffing in almost any fight

                i still use this instead of black flame blade for my black flame build. Simply because this has 90 second duration compared to 6 second of black flame blade. Ridiculous.

                  According to the numbers here and my Incant Scaling (360 with Frenzy Seal), I should be getting a bonus of 270 lightning. Instead I get 147, is there something I'm missing here?

                  • Anonymous

                    With the numbers given and my Scaling(350 on Frenzied Seal), the bonus lightning damage I should be getting is 262ish and I only get 144. Is there something I'm missing?

                      The ideal usage for this is a situational buff on a hybrid build.

                      For example, at your basic hybrid [STR32/FTH32] you enchant a heavy weapon with this situationally to get a much higher amount of damage than you normally would by faith scaling a sacred weapon at [STR-req/FTH50+].

                      Obviously this may be weapon dependent and requires testing on your own end once you find a weapon and damage type you enjoy. As a quick example: I run DEX FTH with a winged scythe and black knife, however, I also run a keen talon sword that I will electrify to utilize the double attack R2's worth of flat lightning damage. The output from this is higher here at 32/32 than it would be at 14/50. Slap square off on there and you now also have poise break.

                      Hopefully you can see where this is going in terms of creating a strong and versatile hybrid using enchants. Note: Both int and faith have two separate damage pools, cold/sorc versus fire/lightning. While there is no scaling debuff for FTH, lighting is a common universal weakness which evens it out in my opinion.

                      Another note: You WILL get higher damage from sorc armament at this time. This may change, but for now sorc arm is the darkmoon blade of Elden Ring.

                        Gravel Stone Seal doesn't appear to do anything.

                        Heavy NSS +25, 22 Str, 80 Fai, Gravel Seal +24, Incant Scaling 312

                        Electify Armament (supposedly boosted by Gravel Seal): AR 578

                        Order's Blade (not boosted by Gravel Seal): AR 578

                          So as a STR main with only 15 points in Faith using the Clawmark seal is it pointless to use this incantation then? Seems like it only adds a tiny amount of damage that isn't really worth it for the FP cost. Am I wrong here?

                          • Anonymous

                            Only 15 faith requirement, adds a good modifier. I think this is partially slept on. Lightning infusion caps at C scaling in Dex. What weapon do you think would be best to use this on? Something thar roll catches surely. We can still use an ash of war on the weapon.

                              There should be a fire enchantment and fire should be a status effect that once built up ignites the enemy for some damage over time similar to black flames.

                                I love that unlike most if not all of the other weapon enchantment incantations and spells, this seems to be able to be used on any type of weapon, where as most if not all of the others can only be used on blade type weapons.

                                making this much more versatile. Wish the others were like this also.

                                Also does anyone know of an incantation that enchants a weapon with fire in the same way? I know theres a incantation that waves flame and then you can swing a weapon at that flame to apply it, but is there and actual fire weapon enchant?

                                In not, thats a huge oversite and needs to be corrected.

                                    Okey so lets make this clear for yall:
                                    Lightning incantations including this buff scale of faifh. ONLY ashes of war lightning affinity is dex scaling. How can lightning incantations scale of dex if there are no actual dex seals and on top of it buffs from incantations (seals) increase ONLY from faith. Good luck

                                        Does this incantation, and so all the other electric ones, scale with faith or with dex, like the infusions?

                                          I’ve been using this since game launch. Kept it to myself since I wanted something kind of unique. But I can confirm that fists, claws, and twin blades work best. When you two hand them both fists get the buff for the flat damage.

                                          Even better when you use a crossbow like pulley crossbow each bolt gets the flat damage so I 1k+ damage with pulley bow and electric bolts unbuffed. you heard it here first folks

                                            Need to test a bit more but I think these buff spells really shine with fists weapons, they seem to get the full damage on each hit so the quick 1-2 jab attacks effectively get twice as much of a boost. Claws are good too but they don't get quite as big of an increase.

                                            • From my tests, Electrify Armament causes Virgin Abductor enemies to stagger way faster like, on my Gargoyle Twinblade +23 the first VA in the Volcano Manor area takes ~12 hits+ to stagger, but with Electrify Armament it only takes ~5 hits. But this is the only mob I've found yet that interacts this way. It says that VA has -20% lightning resistance, but I'm not entirely sure how that translates to over twice as much poise damage. I tried it on trolls and giant land squirts so far without seeing any difference at all. Wonder if anyone has any insight into this.

                                                Just so it’s clear, this incantation is most useful for melee builds that have invested a small amount of faith to be able to cast this. If you’re a pure faith build, fth/dex, or str/fth, an infusion is better.

                                                  Am I missing something with this one? I have to waste time casting and spend FP, but in the end I get lower AR than if I just use Sacred affinity (60 FTH and +10 Erdtree Seal). 75% is way too low if even passive damage from scaling outweighs it.

                                                    Clawmark strength incant scaling has me at 195, but the damage from this is only 34 additional. Clearly the scaling bug is still there in the latest patch.

                                                      This spell would be so much better if there was a blessed type affinity like the one in ds3, adds faith scaling but still lets you use weapon buffs

                                                                The flat incantation scaling from upgrading your seals DO increase the buffable amount, and so does any faith that scaled by the seal. What does not increase the buff damage is hybrid seals which scale incantations with stats other than faith. So, Clawmark's strength scaling and Dragon's Communion Seal's arcane scaling will not add to the buffable amount. This also applies to other armaments such as Bloodflame Blade.

I'm really hoping this is just a weird glitch of sorts, because this would be a fantastic buff for other hybrid faith builds like Str/Fth or Fth/Arc if they could just make it scale off of Incant.

Even if you have minimum FP you''l be able to cast a lot. Besides the damage buff, it's OP to have almost all kinds of damage to buff your weapon on str build.

                                                                                        I'm not sure why nobody has mentioned this... So this incantation isn't compatible with weapons that have an ash of war (you can't activate it on your right hand weapon if it has an ash of war, basically). And just through my testing, for my build, vs Vow of Indomitable it only increases your dps by a fraction of a percent. Now, if you actually activate Vow, Vow will net your more damage by a miles. So, in the end, I'm not so sure if this is that great for your main hand if you're wanting to add holy damage to it? Maybe someone has better insight?

It has this spell along with a few other lightning ones once you give it to the priest. It's a bit of a tough fight but good luck!
